January 28, 2015  


Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk.  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week.  As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phone on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too!   Thanks, guys!!  (and ladies:)

We will also sell your handgun or long gun for a 15% commission (or $50, whichever is higher).  We need it here for inspection before accepting for sale.   Call or email for details.

    Jean and I have decided it's time to cut back a little on shooting (and guns) so will be selling a few:  some tricked out revolvers, my slicked-up Custom Tokarev, MAYBE Jean's 9x40 Open gun.......Hmmm  she says not!
Coming soon:   Ruger SR1911 45

Here now, pics soon:  Ruger NM Bisley stainless Vaquero in 357,

Restricted Handguns:
    Here's a lovely Ruger P89 9mm Stainless pistol that appears barely used.  Factory case, 2 mags, loading tool, nice Hogue grips plus factory ones - $379 - Trades?
    Another very tricked-out CZ.  This CZ75B stainless model 9mm has the full treatment - Competition hammer, along with a very nice trigger job, Adjustable Fiber optic sights, ambi safety, Competition rubber grips from the Shadow.  The smoothness has to be felt to be believed - well over $1300 invested - $990 - trades?  
    This is absolutely the nicest Tokarev I've ever come across. Mine is nice too, of course, but refinished. This is a 7.62x25 1952 manufacture, and by the condition obviously never saw combat.  Flawless finish , great trigger, this almost appears to have come from their "Custom Shop", assuming they had one  :)  The Makarov took over in the USSR in 1951, so that sort of explains things.  $399 - trades?
    This is a 1974 vintage Star Modelo Super in 9mm.  Spanish made and imported into South Africa in the '80's and subsequently here.  Two magazines - ALMOST a 1911, these are very well built, with quite a few features other 1911's could use - loaded chamber indicator, external extractor, slot type barrel locking system like CZ, ambi slide release, and NO GRIP SAFETY :) as well as a  very nice trigger.  They shoot beautifully - this one is almost unfired and very snugly fitted - $749 - trades?
    Tanfoglio Witness 9S, the ported barrel version  - this is a very soft-shooting 9mm that fits even small hands and features the famous CZ style action.  Accurate and quick-pointing - could pass for new, comes with two mags - Now $449 - trades?
    This WG Webley Target model of 1889 is in 476/455 caliber and should qualify as an antique as soon as I can get the paperwork done  :) Initially purchased on October 7th, 1891...
    Another Webley WG, this one the Army Model and in .455/476 caliber (still shoots 455 Webley).  This one was purchased from Holland & Holland, shows some exterior wear, but has a pristine bore and innards, great trigger action and and lovely tight lock-up  :)  I should be able to de-register this one no problem...A chip off the grip, but I have new ones  :)  On hold, Josh  :)
Another WW1 revolver that I really want for myself  :)  This is the Smith & Wesson  Hand Ejector MarkII Second Model in 455 Webley caliber.  Unaltered in any way, with a very shiny bore and as-new internals.  Shows very little shooting ...   I see no military markings so likely a civilian purchase.  $890 - trades?
    This is a real find! an immaculate AMT Hardballer 45 dating from the mid-'80's and completely original, box and all  :)  2 original mags, appears test fired only, and this one is wonderfully tight (that means use a good lube :).  Trigger pull is quite nice - these early ones were very well built. These are basically stainless Colt Gold Cups and excellent shooters $899 - TRADES?
    Bought new in December -   still as-new Kimber TLE/RL 45. This is the sought-after LAPD SWAT version that is so hard to find.   Good trigger but not too light, the reliable internal extractor, fine-line checkered front strap, built-in light rail. Matte black finish, night sights, flush fitting magazine.  $1190- trades?...Hmmm - I don't have one of these..  I need one  :) Sold - Paul  :)
    Rimfire Handguns:
    The new 22 GSG Stainless Model is here - and as usual, tuned and smoothed here, without the magazine disconnect and with a lovely, crisp trigger pull.  One mag, case, interchangeable sights, manual, tools... These are a full scale 1911, not reduced in size like the Browning and Colt, are quite accurate  and very reliable (I have owned one for two years now).  They do like the hotter ammo for best accuracy and performance but seem to chug right along with anything you can feed it :)  $469 with a one year Armco warranty - trades?
    One-of-a-kind Ruger Bearcat 22LR revolver. 4" so Prohib 12(6).  This is a 1961 model and unfired with original box in wonderful condition, even the original cardboard sleeve.  A very slight bit of wear at the muzzle from being in the box all these years.  $499 - trades?
    Here is one of the sought-after High-Standard Supermatic Trophy models fitted with an Aimpoint/Ron Power scope/red dot sight mount - 2 mags, papers,  lovely bore and action - $469 - trades?  These models have phenomenal trigger pulls!
    Very very special - this is an original Marvel 22 kit for the 1911 pistols.  Acknowledged to be the very best and boasting Olympic quality accuracy,  these are available now at up to $700 in the US.  About 800 rounds on this unit and if wanted it will come wit two mag adapters for the 2011 type widebody guns -  2 mags, padded case, manual, tools, test target  $549 trades?
    And this 4" Python is absolutely gorgeous - one-owner, unfired, original box and papers with the 1983 registration papers.  Has 2 pairs of Hogue exotic (Pao Ferro and Rosewood) grips and a rubber set (in case he ever decided to go shooting with it) as well as the mint factory ones, six HKS Speedloaders and the Safariland belt clips for them - $1790 - Trades? 
    This Bernardelli Model 60 is a .32 (7.65) pocket pistol that's unfired - one mag, marvelous condition except for a chip off the grip, comes with the best trigger pull I've ever felt on a pocket pistol!  $99 - trades?
     Some of my own - no tax... all these are 12(6) Prohibs...
All right - time to lose this Model 66-2 Smith & Wesson - and this one is special!  2.5" barrel, round butt - and what a butt!  A gorgeous looking (and feeling) Hogue exotic wood grips as well as the stockers, and a pair of Hogue rubber ones for casual shooting.   Tuned and slicked up inside of course  :)  This one really impresses with magnum loads although I tend to shoot mostly 38 Specials -$800, no tax  :)
This is a Star Model SI in .32 (7.65) and its holster, second magazine, and locked-breech (miniature 1911) action is a joy to shoot.  All-steel and very well made, not one of the potmetal pistols so common from post-war Europe...$349 - trades?  No tax  :)
MAB Modele R - a 32acp French pistol very close to the Model D that is the common civilian version, but built for military use, with an exposed hammer and lanyard ring.  Very few of these were made as the army went to 9mm shortly after,  and today it is much rarer than the D series..small crack in the right grip by the top screw, lovely bore and internals  Now $199 - no tax 
Lee Enfield Jungle Carbine in nice original condition (except for a coat of some sort of shellac on the stock - easily removable, at least none got on the metal)  $699 - trades?
You'll never see another like this!  A Remington 660 in 350 Magnum that could pass for new. Laminated stock, Buehler mounts plus open sights, a lot of people think of these bruisers as short-range brush guns, and they are short and handy, but actually work quite well at reasonably long range..  $1199 - Trades?
Stevens Model 67 pump 12 gauge that is chambered in 2 3/4" and 3" Magnum and with a 30" full choke barrel.  Not new any more but solid and serviceable - AND a lot smoother than the new shotguns out there now :)  $199 - Trades?
    Another one that could pass for new - a gorgeous Ruger Number 1 in 270 Winchester from 1982, with the early red buttpad.  This is the open sighted version and because of the action is really short and handy.  Absolutely immaculate with an exceptional couple of pieces of wood and the rare ebony forend tip- $1199 - trades? 
This new, unfired Turkish 12 gauge (2 3/4" and 3") "Gladiator"pump shotgun is lovely, smooth and well-equipped for bear defense or tactical use - $279 - trades?  Do those Turks have nice walnut or what?  There have been some beautiful shotguns coming out of Turkey for many years now  :)
1940 BSA-Made Lee Enfield rifle with a wonderful bore.  All metal parts are excellent and complete - wood has been "customized" of course, but replacements are available...$249 - trades?
OK, here's my pride and joy - my Savage-based custom 1000 yard rifle (works pretty darn well at shorter distances, too!) with  only 1850 rounds on it (In this caliber a rifle like this (it's always been loaded with the very cool-burning H1000 powder) will normally go over 3000 rounds before the barrel needs to be moved back or replaced)  a 27" stainless Krieger barrel, custom-fitted laminated stock, left hand oversize bolt handle (I shoot right handed but prefer to work the bolt left-handed like a lot of right-handers, keeping my grip intact), tactical rings and Swarovski 6-24 Habicht scope, wonderful trigger, Stony Point OAL gauge, Redding competition die set (over $300), lots of Lapua brass,  Sierra 142 grain Match kings, other assorted match bullets, everything but powder (H1000) and primers - and for local buyers, I have that as well... -  Now  $2100 (or $1200 for the rifle, $1100 for the scope which is as-new with original box and papers) - no Tax.  This rifle also works like a charm for left-handers, of course!
Gorgeous 22 Hornet single shot Anschutz model 1730  Double set triggers, lovely condition, has not been fired much at all.  $1350 (scope gone) - trades?  Comes with a lovely $80 soft rifle case...(and two boxes of factory ammo for a local buyer :)
Now this is really lovely!  A Sako 85L Bavarian in 7mm Magnum with a breath-taking piece of wood and Sako's usual smooth action and flawless metal work.  The scope was a Zeiss Conquest HD5 in 2-10X42 (Now gone) with $180 worth of Sako Opti-lock bases and rings - Still on the rifle) - wow!   $1890 with bases and rings but without scope.  (If you miss out on this one, you can find one at Grouse River at $2139 plus rings and bases  :)  This one has been fired but it's hard to tell...

A mint unfired John Rigby 275 Model 98 Sporter, complete with the best QD claw mounts made (worth a small fortune alone).  This rifle is gorgeous (and should be for the over $9000 retail price).  Now $6290 - Trades welcome..

    Here's a nice 12 gauge 870 that is all tricked out - collapsible stock and custom pistol grip, shell holders (2),  foregrip with laser/light mounts on both sides extended mag. tube, and 2 3/4" so it holds more  rounds than the magnums.  $450 - trades?
    Here's one for the guy who has everything! A Swiss Vetterli in 41 Rimfire With AMMO!  9 rounds of old Peters ammo, plus a couple empties.  The ammo last sold in the US for $15 a round but is pretty unobtainable now.  Bore on this 1880's rifle is still pretty good and it certainly would be decent shooter.  Some obvious repair/modification to the wood, but that's only a challenge!  Now $450 - Trades?
    And... Neat stuff!!
    Very nice original magazine for the 380 Colt Model 1903 Hammerless - rare - $45...
    Browning HiPower mags by Mec-Gar - the best HiPower mags made, with the spring-loaded ejection feature.  These are made (and so marked) for the 40, but work great with 9mm (and hold more rounds) - and it's LEGAL!   $40 each  Sold Steve  :)

    Here is a NIB Tru-Glo sight set (Tritium plus fiber-optic so a night and day set-up  :) for the Kimber 1911 $30
    The parts only - no receiver  :(   This is one of the AP-80 22LR AK47 look-alikes that the RC MP says are prohibs.  If they want the receiver, fine, but they're only getting that  :)   It was registered as non-restricted and they can't put it into 12(5), although they won't leave it as non-restricted either.    HMMM.       I want $200 for all but the receiver - would make a great Krinker Plinker.  I'm sure you can figure out how to adapt the pieces to your 10-22...

    And another CZ, could pass for new, this one the CZ75 9mm Tactical model with everything needed - Night sights, ambidextrous decocker, accessory rail, 2 mags, cleaning kit, case, manual...$799 - trades?  Sold, Bonnie  :)
